Each processor maybe only run 200mhz.

What do you think about another Quad phone?
When you browsing or music it's still "Quad core" right?

Imagine S3 battery life when just browsing and music with "only" A9 based architecture. Battery life is very good.

What happen if use A7 based architecture?

Just curious...what were you all doing prior to smart phones? And why you need a quad core-eigh core processor? Are we not talking about a cell phone? I visit this site and every damn time you are all fighting over which company is best...IT'S A CELL PHONE! You don't own the company and you are not sponcered by the companies...everyone needs to chill the hell out, life's too short.

Mali is not processor. Mali is GPU.

8 Core cpu is gimmick.
Practically it's 4 core A15 and 4 core A7.

It's not working together. 4 core A15 used when play gaming or whatever who need power and if just browsing music call or whatever it will be switch to 4 core A7.

A7 based processor very2 good at battery life

There definitely will be a change in design and it won't be plastic hopefully.

Perhaps you haven't heard that this octa core processor is based on ARM's big little architecture which pairs four bigARM A-15 with four little A-7 to execute high intensity & low intensity tasks in the most power efficient manner .

Today's octacores are two quad-cores - one for high cpu needs and the other for power saving. Think of it as a Toyota Prius switching between its gasoline engine and electric motor depending on current requirement. That's how 8 cores have longer battery life.
